Our most recent T+L Twitter Chat covered the best new destinations, gadgets, tour guides, and more for adventure travel.
We started out by asking our expert panelists where the up-and-coming adventure travel destinations were. Answers ranged from andBeyond visiting “Uganda for gorilla trekking or Sri Lanka for snorkeling with blue whales,” to Absolute Travel sharing how their “travelers want new takes on tried-and-true destinations, like a vintage sidecar ride through Shanghai.”
Dunton Hot Springs keeps it local by having unique adventures in the deserts or mountains, while Butterfield & Robinson is excited about new overseas trips ranging from Chile to Newfoundland. ROW Adventures suggested Manila or Bangkok “for urban adventures. [There’s] nothing like risking your life on a moto-taxi weaving through 10 million people.”
Whether you’re jumping out of a plane, hiking Machu Picchu, or searching for the big five on a Zambian safari, the best part about adventure travel is the journey and endeavor itself.

If you had a limitless budget, where would be the one city you’d shop in and what would you buy? Whether you’re a top designer, devoted foodie, or just travel-obsessed, responses to this type of question are nothing short of daydream-worthy.
For our most recent #ShopLikeALocal Twitter chat, answers to this question ranged from Designers Yeardley Smith of Marchez Vous and Kara Ross of Kara Ross NY both choosing New York City; Designer Chris Benz voting for Paris to hunt down the many treasures he covets; Creative Director, Rafe, wanting to head off the map and buy a beachfront house in Palawan; or Designer Cynthia Vincent dreaming of a summer home in Istanbul so that she can decorate it with everything from local markets and bazaars—for us, we would choose all of the above.
Pinterest isn't just for recipes, decorating, or (our favorite) travel inspiration. It's also a great way to see what other people are reading and discovering online.

Over the next few weeks, you'll begin to see articles from Travel + Leisure on our Pinterest boards, with helpful information about the piece right in the pin—such as the headline, author, and a brief description. This will make your boards more useful and easier to keep organized.
Last week, a six-clawed lobster was found off of Midcoast Maine, and just a week earlier a two-toned lobster was pulled from similar waters. But most lobster fans have been buzzing over the rare affordability of lobsters these days—prices per pound are the lowest they've been in 20 years. Maybe this is the one good side of Global Warming?
Americans consumed 231 million pounds of Maine lobster last year—a record high. The conclusion? A trip to Maine—especially in the late-summer or early fall—is not complete without eating lobster. In warmer months, lobsters molt, and their shells become so soft you can eat them with your hands, without the aid of crackers. Just ask for a "shedder" and you'll sound like a local. Maine native Luke Holden, of Luke's Lobster in New York City, shows you just what to do.
We’ve all had (or dreamt of having) the type of trip that is truly transformative.

Join our live Twitter chat on Life-Changing trips this Wednesday, September 4th from 2pm to 3pm EDT. Our panel of experts will share tips on the best destinations for wellness, how to use travel to overcome difficulties, and how travel experiences can change your life.
